This project’s main objective was to identify novel Colorado potato beetle gene targets for the development of specific RNAi insecticides and further validate prospective targets using transcriptomics. The work included gene selection, establishment of double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) production methodology and the evaluation of dsRNAs’ insecticidal potential in CPB feeding laboratory and field trials.
